“It’s not personal”: Tyson Fury drops truth bomb on his relationship with undisputed champ Oleksandr Usyk, Gypsy King predicts bout result

In spite of previously expressing his strong disapproval towards Oleksandr Usyk, Tyson Fury recently admitted that he does not harbor any personal hatred towards the Ukrainian boxer.

Over the past year, ‘The Gypsy King’ and Usyk engaged in a continuous exchange of verbal jabs as they attempted to secure a highly anticipated clash for the undisputed heavyweight world titles, a bout that has yet to materialize.

What did Tyson Fury say about Oleksandr Usyk?

Fury resorted to calling his Ukrainian counterpart a ‘little rat b******,’ a ‘middleweight,’ a ‘rabbit,’ ‘gappy-teethed,’ and a ‘little s***house,’ among other choice epithets.

However, Fury clarified on Twitter Spaces that these insults are not fueled by animosity, shedding light on his true feelings towards Usyk.

“I would love to fight Usyk for the undisputed titles,” Fury said, “But at the minute Usyk is running like a cheater, he is running so fast, he can’t get away from me quick enough. The only reason this fight hasn’t happened is Usyk wants more bags, he wants more money.”

“So, it’s not a personal thing of ‘I hate Usyk’ or ‘oh my god Usyk didn’t fight me for whatever reasons,’ this is strictly business. But, when we do finally meet, I’m going to annihilate him, that’s a fact,” he added.

Will Tyson Fury and Olexandr Usyk’s bout happen in the Saudi tournament?

In a recent development, Oleksandr Usyk has inked a deal with Skills Challenge Entertainment, a promotional company based in Saudi Arabia. The company has boldly stated that they will be presenting a non-negotiable offer to Tyson Fury in the near future.

The proposal aims to set up a monumental showdown between Fury and Usyk in December, forming part of an audacious plan to stage not only their bout but also a parallel event featuring Anthony Joshua against Deontay Wilder on the same momentous night.

This ambitious endeavor signifies the grand vision and aspirations of Skills Challenge Entertainment in the world of boxing.


Despite the December clash between ‘The Gypsy King‘ and Oleksandr Usyk being far from certain, it likely remains the ultimate objective for all parties involved.

With a significant fight and a lucrative payday on the line, Fury must exercise caution when considering his next bout.
